The Think Tank Hub Geneva, founded in April 2014, is an initiative undertaken by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and managed by the think tank foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy. The Hub aims to create a dynamic and innovative space for think tanks specialised in various fields.
The Think Tank Hub provides six fully equipped working spaces as well as conference facilities free of charge to think tanks from around the world in need of temporary office space in Geneva. The offices are conveniently located in the building of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) based in the heart of the UN district. The welcome desk assists guests in finding accommodation in Geneva and provides general support throughout their stay. Depending on the availability of office space, visiting think tanks can schedule a stay lasting up to several weeks and/ or plan tailor-made events.
The Think Tank Hub is coordinated by 'foraus – the Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy'. foraus generates independent, high quality recommendations for Swiss foreign policy decision makers and the public, thereby bridging the gap between academia and politics. Its non-partisan approach aims to promote an open dialogue and informed decision-making on all aspects of Swiss foreign policy. foraus is a grassroots organization. Its success as a think tank is based on its members’ voluntary commitment. Members are primarily recent graduates and young professionals active in a nationwide network of young researchers and foreign policy enthusiasts.
